Today we are looking at a different aspect of play- not playing with your children. I know, that sounds strange. I think Emily from The Journey of Parenthood explains it very well. Sometimes it is hard to get down and actually play with our kids. I know this is not one of my parenting strengths. I like to think I have other strengths as a mother. And I do get down on the floor and play with Ben. It just isn’t something I excel at or enjoy as much as other aspects of parenting. Fortunately, Pat is a natural at playing with Ben. Those two can hang out and play with toys way longer than I have the patience for. I love the list Emily has put together of other ways to bond with our children. I’ve used some of them and think I will try some more as Ben gets older!
And of course check out all the bloggers this week!
